We understand a considerable amount of time goes into planning that perfect family vacation.  There are several options in multiple price ranges and locations.  Let us explain just for a minute why we feel we have found one of the best locations the Gulf Shores area has to offer.

  • Price - You work hard to save money for your family vacation. A good vacation should not put you in debt for the rest of the year. We continually monitor local prices to keep our property at or below other similar properties in the area. We have actually found our price for three bedrooms and two baths generally is below single room hotel rates.  Our rates are lower than others in the area because we manage our own property and pass the savings onto our guests.

  • Location - The Gulf Shores area has a lot to offer with its beautiful white sandy beaches, locally owned themed restaurants, and year round beautiful weather. Of course, along with that comes traffic and crowds. The Fort Morgan area of Gulf Shores is away from the hustle and bustle of public beaches and the concentrated areas of restaurants and shops. About the time you hit the Rt. 59 beachgoer traffic, you will be turning on Fort Morgan Rd. for an easy drive to Plantation Resort. Our bet is you will hit the beach before those in traffic reach their hotel or condo. The first thing you will notice when you hit the beach is how many other families are enjoying the beach. There is plenty of room to stretch out and take in some rays. Don't worry, there are several restaurants in the Fort Morgan area to include an on-site Sassy Bass and a Tacky Jacks just a short drive away.

  • House vs Condo Rental - This is always a decision which requires a lot of thought. Let us make it easy on you and offer you the best of both worlds.  Generally, when you rent a house, it is all you get. There is no place to swim, no place to work out, and no hot tub or sauna along with other amenities. Dixie Sand Delight and Gone Coastal offer all of the amenities available to Plantation Resort condo guests included in our price. There is a beautiful pool, hot tub and BBQ grill in our immediate area. When you rent a condo you deal with the wait of crowded elevators. Then you forgot where you parked the night before as you are wandering around the parking lot hitting the button on the key fob. Or better yet, you are coming back from that big grocery store run and the only parking spot available is in the farthest corner from the building. You head to it just as that late afternoon thunderstorm rolls through. Dixie Sand Delight and Gone Coastal offer plenty of parking right outside our doors, and no elevators. As a matter of fact, it has been said that you can clear our doors and walk to the beach before the elevator gets to your floor in a condo.

  • Flexibility - Dixie Sand Delight and Gone Coastal are located in a single building duplex. Each side comfortably sleeps 10 guests. All of our rooms have at least one double bed in each bedroom. Some have plenty of room to pile in the kids for a good old fashioned beach slumber party. There is always that couple who gets there last or loses the rock, paper, scissors game and ends up on the sleeper couch. Not a bad thing here, as part of our extensive renovation project we added sleeper couches with memory foam mattresses. No more poorly placed bar across the small of your back. Need room for more than 10 guests? Not a problem here.  Rent both sides and bring all of the family down. Just open the common door and spread the joy and costs around to everyone.
